Aldinville Elementary students score new shirts made from recycled sheets

A brainchild of uMhlanga Sands Resort, 450 school shirts made from recycled sheets were donated to a school in Groutville.

Pieter le Roux, a new Ballito resident who learned about the work of the North Coast Courier Orphan Fund, contacted coordinator Mpume Vilakazi to find out what he could do to help.

One of the projects he had in mind was to board the uMhlanga Sands Resort.

‘It turned out the hotel was already busy with a project which included recycling bed sheets into school shirts and we knew Aldinville Primary School in Groutville needed school shirts’ , said Vilakazi.

The station’s assistant general manager, Franco Seaman, organized a fun day for the children of the school and handed out the donated shirts.

“The shirts are of excellent quality and even packaged like new. Mr. Seaman has also promised to come back at the end of the year to give the kids a Christmas party,” Vilakazi said.

Le Roux also made contact with Umhlanga Cabanas, who donated R50,000 worth of goods to flood victims. Items included quilts and blankets, kettles, toasters, cups, saucers and more.
